How to schedule a meeting using the Google Calendar

The Google Calendar makes it easy for you to invite Graduate School staff to a meeting.  In particular, it is recommended to make an appointment with Debra Charlesworth to discuss your final thesis or dissertation questions.  Making an appointment will ensure the appropriate staff are available, and that we are prepared to meet with you.  You are also welcome to stop by anytime, particularly when Dr. Charlesworth’s schedule shows that she is available.

To start, log into the Google Calendar. Navigate to – log in with your full MTU e-mail address and password.

Schedule an appointment by using the “create” button, or click and drag on the calendar. Click on “Edit Event” to add more details and invite guests. To drop off final paperwork, schedule a 15 minute appointment.  For other questions, select 30 or 60 minutes. Need more help? Check out the video tutorial from Google.

Click and drag to create an event.

Type the name of the staff member you’d like to meet with in the “Guests” box. Click on the “Find a time” tab to help you schedule an appropriate time.

On the “Find a time” tab, you’ll be able to see your schedule, along with all of your guests.   Need help? Google has a tutorial on using the find a time and invitation tools.

All meetings, unless otherwise agreed upon, will take place in the Graduate School, on the 4th floor of the Administration building.

You will receive an e-mail when the appointment is accepted, unless you have changed the default settings on your account.
